Amira Hass explains why Israel’s U.S. model of ethnic cleansing failed, and why ‘Jewish regime’ will ‘crumble’

"Read this amazing true line: "The question was, and is, how much more bloodshed, suffering and disasters will be needed until the Jewish regime of discrimination and separation, which we have created here over the past 64 years, crumbles." This is a frankly anti-Zionist piece, written by a child of Holocaust survivors. Amira Hass is thirsting for the DeKlerk to lead her society out of its racist dead-end. I cannot imagine it being published in the New York Times. A sad reflection on our discourse. "

  1. Societies dont just crumble on their own. History bears this out. Disease, pestilence, starvation, war, they engender collapse. But not often in this day and age.

    The USSR collapsed-supposedly. But russia today is much the same, minus some satellite states and bread lines. Culturally, it's intact.

  2. When since the 1870s (native Americans) have Americans practiced ethnic cleansing? Maybe the writer mean the English?

    How have the Israelis followed the American model? Racism against patriotic loyal successful Israeli citizens is wrong. Just because an Israeli citizen of Palestinian descent gets better grades than you, has a better job than you, works harder than you, saves more than you, and has more wealth than you than you isn't an excuse to discriminate against them. It is immoral, ammoral, and wrong. Israelis are better than that.

    Much of the Israeli misdeads against Palestinians might be driven by jealousy. Jealousy is one of the 6 deadly sins. It will destroy us unless we confront it.

  3. It appears that "the writer"  was talking about the ethnic cleansing practiced against native Americans,  Why this shouldn't apply today I can't understand, since the 2nd class citizen status still applies.

  4. Buh, in America increasingly wealth is getting concentrated in the hands of immigrants, children of immigrants, ethnic Americans, minority Americans. This is starting to lead to resentment and jealousy, which could be dangerous and harmful to America's long term growth.

    Don't agree with you that Native Americans (at least Native Americans who live in large urban areas in California, Texas, Florida, Utah etc.) are second class citizens in America anymore. America has changed a lot over the last couple generations.

    England has a much bigger challenge with racism, however. England needs to learn from countries that incorporate immigrants and minorities well, such as Hong Kong, America, Singapore, Canada, Malaysia, Australia, Ireland and India.

    I really dislike attacking the "Jewish regime." Implying that somehow Israel is synonymous with Jews. This is very wrong.
